Any experience of these? A 725 frame for £370?

First question is how many of the tubes are 725?
Current status report:
Latter side of fifty and feeling less than nifty.
Too many bikes on pegs and too few miles in the legs.

Assuming it is 725 throughout, a good tubeset only gets you some way towards a good frame. If the workmanship and lug quality is poor then a quality tubeset is wasted.

This is probably a better buy for similar money. Genesis is a known brand.

That does sound like a safer option.

Not one of our better exchanges, that one.
